Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Frida Kahlo Swap

 Well the swap is in! I just received my ATC cards from the Frida Kahlo Day of the Dead Swap! Super fun!!! I got some really original cards and I enjoyed the uniqueness of each of them.  The first one (to the left) is done by Lynnette April of Sandy, Utah! I just adore her use of embellishments.
 This second one is representative of the holiday Day of the Dead! I love the lime slices for eyes. This was done by Frances Perea.
My final card was again from Lynette April. Too lucky to get 2 cards from her!  Since I have been busy with my formal art education, I am so happy others are filling my addiction! Happy ATC's.
